Growing Gardens - Vegetable Garden planting

Do you want to see how others are vegetable garden planting in your area?  "Growing Gardens" road trip will start early June 2015.  I am planning to fulfill a dream I have had of traveling throughout Canada and the USA visiting veggie gardeners.  My trip is for 3 reasons:

  1. To meet some of my readers, see how they grow their own food, learn what challenges and successes they have may have in their area of the country, and share this with my other readers.
  2. To inspire more people to grow some of their own food, to show how easy it can be.
  3. To explore the vast areas of Canada and the USA, I love road trips.

If you are reading this and are interested in me coming to visit your garden, take some pictures, ask a few questions and then allowing me to post them on my website to share with other gardeners please email me. 

I am looking to visit vegetable gardens large or small, rural or urban, traditionally or quirky.  I feel it will be fabulous to be able to share the huge diversity of how, where and what people grow to provide food for themselves.  It can be your business or just a few pots of herbs that you grow for yourself.  If you are interested in being involved in my project please email me at

Vegetable Garden Planting - close to home

Community garden in downtown Sechelt, British Columbia Canada

Behind the Community Services office on Inlet Avenue is a beautiful oasis of display and vegetable gardens created and maintained by many volunteers since ground was broken in 1992.  There are 34 raised beds 4 feet by 12 feet.

Small back yard garden in Roberts Creek,            British Columbia Canada

We dug up a 10 by 15 foot area of grass to make this garden. It was quite sloped so we used a log to divide the area into two beds, on two levels.  Because the larger bed was so wide we decided to make a designated pathway of stone in the center of it for the following reasons: 

  1. So we would not compact the growing area which is hard on the soil structure.
  2. To easily reach all areas of the garden for planting and harvesting.

As I begin my road trip I will be adding new photos and write ups of gardens I am honored to visit and explore. 

I will be starting out from southern British Columbia, Canada.  My initial plan its to drive down the West coast, head across southern USA, up the eastern coast and then back across northern USA and across into Canada.  I have approx 15 gardens so far that I am planning to visit. I would love to come visit you, so please send me an email letting me know you are interested at
